First comes baby then comes marriage: our favorite parent couples who got hitched

“I got divorced a couple of years back and am partnered again planning a wedding for Halloween 2020.

We’ve been throwing around the idea of this wedding coloring sheet for years but never had a great tutorial for how to make one yourself, which you absolutely can do.
